Re: Worst loss in Hantuchova's Career?
No, it's one of many for Daniela. She's had some side issues dealing with weight and other vanities, coupled with some poor decision-making in matches, which cost her victories at key moments in Slams and other events. She gave away a match last year against the just-returning and out-of-shape Serena in L.A., where she basically controlled the match. She twice used an ill-advised drop shot, preempting her own momentum, which swung the match over to Serena. Today, knowing that Serena had issues with her leg, she should have taken advantage of such by moving Serena around the court. However, she elected to return Serena's grounds' right back at her, where Serena would hit winner after winner, coupled with Serena's dominating first and second serves. Not very good thinking on her part, but consistent with the way she has used her judgment while playing in other matches. Her decision-making at key points has always been her problem, although she has a nice game.
